Marrickville Council has given notification that it intends to remove a Grey Ironbark (Eucalyptus paniculata) in Enmore TAFE Park, Sarah Street Enmore.

Council gives the following reasons for removal –

  • “Tree is structurally compromised with extensive internal decay and borer damage.
  • History of multiple branch failures.
  • Pruning to mitigate risk would adversely affect the tree.
  • Tree poses a risk to public safety.”

They say they will replace with a Sydney Blue gum (Eucalyptus saligna), but not when this will happen.

The deadline for any submissions is Friday 30th May 2014.
